Question about Heating & Cooling
Unit has a standing pilot. Pilot light ok. When unit kicks on does not immediately light. Unit then kicks on with loud noise. Has even blown access latch and door open. If leave access door open burner immediately lights. Have checked chimney and pulled vent pipe off the top of the unit
to clear fresh air intake on chimney/vent pipe. Was some debris there when cleaned. Had a furnace guy come over and charge us $160 to vacuum around the fresh air intake/outside of the double walled vent pipe and tell us it might be plugged where he can't get to it and to buy a new furnace. Can it be dismantled to get to where it's may be plugged? Do you think that is the real problem? Intertherm series 1100 propane furnace
You absolutely must stay with Therin's recommendation. You do have a block or a cracked heat exchanger and this is nothing to toy with. Carbon Monoxide is very serious and dangerouos. All of your new furnaces should be power ventilated and you need to retire that one.

Cheman, yes this is a real problem. Not only will it get worse, it could kill you and your family. If there is a blockage inside the heat exchanger where your technician could not reach, you would not do much better and may cause more problems if you do. If you continue to run this furnace, you will create Carbon Monoxide and it will kill you over a very short time.
Stick with yor technicians recommendation and get a replacement unit. Go with a direct vent unit and a higher efficiency than this old clunker.
